After the development of several sets of pictograms by various designers over the years, the NCC looked to us to thoroughly evaluate and redesign the NCC’s entire park pictogram system.

The focus was to create a new system that was highly recognizable, consistent in style and colour, and consistent in the depiction and placement of elements from sign to sign. It was also important to keep the pictograms in line with internationally-recognized symbols.

“ninesixteen has brought a much-needed uniformity to our pictogram system: the visual language of our new icons is now much more consistent, and they finally look like they belong to a single family. ninesixteen’s work was thoughtful and thorough, and the improvements they made to our maps have made them much more clear to our parks’ visitors.”
